blogs, the financial crash, and history

I was looking back at my blog postings from 2008, and realizing how much information is in there about the financial crisis. I assume many people like me were simply posting their day-to-day musings about what was happening as the world economy headed south, and I imagine at some point someone is going to go back through that and get an amazing amount of interesting information about what people - individuals - were thinking/feeling at this time. It kind of makes me sad that facebook and like companies have eaten that space - now our day-to-day musings are locked up in some company's database, destined to die one day due to some corporate merger or downsizing.
